What's the deal here? Has anyone else run into this?

Welcome to OLD
Does your pedal base have spikes that dig in to the carpet? If so they are normally adjustable and you might be able to screw them out a litte more. Bear in mind they may rip up your carpet a bit, so it’s best to use a matt or older carpet.
Failing this, you could try Velcro on the base of the pedal, but once again it may damage the carpet.

There are products like the Drum Mat http://www.musicians...ug?src=3WWRWXGP which help to prevent slipping.
I have spikes on my pedal that dig into the rug to keep it from moving.
In the past I've used velcro, and even a 35 pound weight behind my hi hat. Velcro seems to be the best solution although it makes it difficult to move around and/or adjust when needed.
Anyone else have any tips or tricks?

I would get an old rug or a mat, and put some Velcro on the bottom. Ive had to do that just to make sure it stays in place, works well. It can ruin a carpet though, so again, get an old rug or mat.
He nailed it , put velcro in the bottom , it work

Although all three of the rugs look similar, one of them I can't use to set my drums on. The weave is slightly different and it's just a tiny bit thinner than the others. It's difficult to see this without looking closely, but I have the same issue...my left pedal on my Iron Cobras will not grip it well.
